The rock-solid, no-compromise, all-tube VOX head for the musician on the go.

Whether you're adding your hot sound to a late-night demo, sitting in at your favorite club, or jamming with friends, the Night Train NT15H is your new best friend. Whenever and wherever, the Vox Night Train will deliver that smooth and satisfying all-tube sound. You don't want to choose between killer sound and total convenience—with the Vox Night Train amp head you never will.

If Looks Could Kill

Solid enough to inspire confidence, Night Train weighs just under 17 pounds, and the "armored lunchbox" dimensions provide extreme portability. Finished with a cool chrome mirror-finish, the signature VOX diamond design reveals that inspiring vacuum-tube glow. And of course, the Night Train NT15H guitar amp includes its own padded carry case to protect your investment.

True Tube Power

The sound is pure VOX. Inside, a pair of EL84 tubes deliver on the tube power promise. Two 12AX7 tubes drive the preamp stage with both power and clarity. This is the same winning tube complement as the classic VOX AC15. From chime-like clean tones to the warmest overdrive, there is no mistaking that harmonic richness of pure tube performance.

Dual Nature

The Vox Night Train's single switch lets you select between Pentode or Triode tube operation. In the Pentode mode, Night Train delivers a full 15 watts of power. In the Triode mode, the power is cut to 7.5 watts. The Triode mode also relaxes the tube power stage, letting that silky-smooth, mellow tube character shine through.

Preamp Pizzazz

Night Train greets you with a clear, simple panel design, offering the familiar Gain and Volume controls. The Tone controls include Treble, Middle and Bass, allowing you to dial up just the right character for your individual, signature tone. In addition, the preamp section features a mode switch, offering both Bright and Thick options. The Bright mode accentuates the high-frequency components for a clear, ringing tone; the Thick setting bypasses the tone circuit to boost the gain and create a chunkier, heavier sound.

Cabinet Convenience

Equipped with both 8- and 16-ohm speaker jacks, Night Train amp head can be used immediately with nearly any speaker cabinet. This extra measure of versatility is just one more example of why the Vox Night Train might be the one amp you never leave at home.

Great if...

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H 15W Guitar Amp Head:

...you match it up with the right speaker. I tried a whole slew of great speakers with this head before I finally scored a winning combination (for me anyway). Here are some of the speakers I tried that didn't work. Greenback, V30, Texas Heat, Cannibus Rex, Private Jack, etc... Finally, I tried it with an Eminence Governor and everything just clicked. Creamy, thick, harmonically rich distortion. I hope this helps somebody out there.

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H 15W Guitar Amp Head:

this amp head is purely amazing. it has a crystal clean sound and an amazing dirty sound. not too mention its insanely loud. i play this through an epiphone 1x12 cabinet and it sounds fantastic. totally worth the money.

All Aboard!!!

Comments about Vox Night Train NT15H 15W Guitar Amp Head:

Not only is this a great looking amp, but it has the sound to match. It is important to pair it with the right speaker(s) to achieve a great sound. I have played mine through a 1-12" greenback (Very Good), and a 4-12" Vintage 30's (Fantastic). Of course the 4 - 12 setup kind of defeats the portability, but I think you will be happy with a decent 1-12 or 2-12 cabinet. I tried it through the inexpensive VOXV112TV in a store, and that sounds like crud. I am curious to hear the matching cabinet that is yet to appear in the USA. I favor the normal setting (non-thick), and I turn the Master up very high, while keeping the Gain under 12:00, and then backing off my volume a bit on the guitar to allow a little boost when needed. It sounds surprisingly good with a Tele --. much warmer than I imagined. I like this amp because it is not the same sound as the classic AC15/30 series, yet it is capable of that Vox jangle, as well as crunchy leads. It comes with a polishing cloth, which you will need if you put your fingers on the beautiful finish. Now I just need to find a mirror-finish cabinet to match! All in all, one of the nicer amps I have owned.
